THE ISSM MEETINGS - YEAR 2018. The Institute for Studies on Mediterranean Societies (CNR-ISSM) organizes annual meeting cycles in which guest speakers are invited to discuss specific topics, within the framework of wide-ranging themes, with a constant focus on the Mediterranean area (economy, environment, migration, history, cultural heritage, logistics). The meetings start with a targeted presentation, followed by a final discussion in which those present can share different approaches and points of view. The guest speakers have the objective to favour and encourage the confrontation among people with different training, stimulating the birth of new ideas with an interdisciplinary approach.

The meeting of 4 July 2018 with Vittorio Ingegnoli, founder of the "Landscape Bionomy", offers the opportunity to discuss with an expert a current and central theme for territorial policies in the Mediterranean: the landscape as a hyper-complex system that constitutes a living entity.
